Steady Snow Forecasted for Thursday and Friday
Anywhere from 3-5 inches of snow could fall in the area; a Winter Storm Watch is now in effect.
Another winter storm is headed this way.
Unlike the blizzard of 2013, though, this incoming storm is expected to bring only upwards of 3-5 inches of the white stuff. This storm will comprise a mix of wind, rain wet snow, the accumulations of which will take place mostly along and outside I-95 Thursday, according to WHDH.
Moreover, it will take some time to reach the predicted snow accumulation, WHDH Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner wrote in his blog Wednesday:
Tomorrow and into early Friday morning will be the brunt of the storm but I have to tell you---it won't behave like a classic winter storm where we get slammed with snow for 6-8 hours then we're done. It will be a slow, drawn out storm where it snows lightly (sometimes steadily) for several hours. Due to this, those snow totals you see on our special map will take some time to achieve. Also, because of the slowly falling nature of the snow combined with the month of March (sun is stronger than Dec-Jan snowstorms) our roads may just be mostly wet rather than white during the storm. Back streets, parking lots & driveways will still need to be scraped & plowed.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for much of the region, including Norfolk County.
